Peaceful and relaxed, has a good age range, friendly staff, decent sized breakfast and in a quiet street with supermarkets nearby. Plenty of pockets to find people or to get away.
We stayed 6 nights and didn't once have an enjoyable shower. Either boiling hot or freezing cold (second floor showers). Kitchen is well stocked and hammock area is lovely. BBQ was nice way of meeting people. Hostel was quite empty so not great atmosphere. Staff were friendly and tours were available. About a 15min walk into central town or 5mins to metro. Overall good value for Santiago. Plugs in room didn't work with our UK-South American adaptor, only USB charger in TV room worked.
A very good hostel, not as posh as some I have stayed in, including Santiago’s nearby Andes Hostel where I stayed 12 nights. But Ecohostel where I spent one night had the better breakfast, plenty of whole grain cereal choices, fresh bananas and mandarin oranges and rolls. (I received a $9/night promo rate for Eco's 6-bed dorm; the rate is usually $16/night. At $9/night it was a good value, but at $16/night I would stay at Andes which is more upscale and more convenient to the Metro.)
A big place, but not noisy. Our private matrimonial room was enormous, the bed was huge and clean. Was impressed by the included breakfast, and the hostel was close to everything. The only real grievance I had was with the showers, which despite all the claims of being independent systems, and always giving hot water, out of the three showers I had, none worked entirely. Still, a recommended stay.
Great atmosphere and staff. Would definitely recommend.
Great hostel at the heart of Santiago's historic centre. The rooms are big and airy, with old hardwood floors and big windows. The staff is lovely, they were very understanding when my friend got sick and did not charge us for the night he missed. The common rooms are always full of people up for a chat or out to give advice. A bit chilly though, and the second floor only has one shower and one shower/toilet combo, but that hasn't caused much problems.
Very good Hostel. A little more expensive, but a little better as well. Booking trough Hostelworld recommended because they sometimes have promotions and you gonna pay half.
I have stayed there for a few days and I have to say that it is a nice hostel, very nice breakfast, the staff really helpfull. Tanks to Francesca for all her help. Easy subway (metro) not too far away, close to super market and ATM... well everything around. I recommand.
This is a nice place 15 minutes walk from the centre, close enough to the action but also far enough away to ensure you will sleep well in the large comfortable beds. There is a nice relaxed vibe in the hostel and the staff are pleasant and helpful (Mostly Chileans but speak English). The hostel tries to encourage recycling by providing facilities but it is left to guests to decide. It was always kept clean. The breakfast was great - good choice of fresh fruit, cereals, toast, jams, tea/coffee.
Staff is very laid back and friendly. The BBQs were fun and festive. I met some great people during my stay. Convenient location, fair price.
